look out to the west of us, and pull the map over a little bit. you can see a few clouds from kentucky into tennessee. they'll climb over the mountains and kind of break up into our dry air, but be flowing tomorrow, so we'll see a few clouds and go mostly to partly sunny as opposed to today's sunny. temperatures, boy oh boy, 52 in roxboro, 55 in durham, 55 in raleigh, 53 in fayetteville, 51 in wilson. still 50 in south hill, virginia. we are only going to fall into the 40s overnight. you see that there, temperatures in the 40s, and then tomorrow will be a mild day. the light greens are upper 60s. the yellows are 70s. the cold air is all -- well, it's all trapped up to the north, you know, the jet stream running well to the north of us. it's keeping that cold air up there. so your hourly forecast, 6 a.m. when you're getting ready for the bus stop, a jacket, but nothing too heavy duty compared to what we've had the last several mornings. 44 degrees at 6 a.m. i have a
6:00, maybe right after it, and then 48 at 8:00. 57 at 10:00. 64 degrees at noon. 68. that'll be our high around 2:00 or 3:00 in the afternoon. 67 at 4:00, and still a comfortable 60 at 6:00. so couple clouds with that weak front. those clouds showed you over tennessee then late in the day should be back to sunny skies so looking pretty good. our next weather maker, not counting that front tomorrow because ut's such a dry front. the one that might affect you will be wednesday. it still looks like a morning through midday-type front where we'll see some scattered showers. amounts should be under a half inch, and there might even be a little isolated thunder there. so that could occur south of the triangle. we're not looking for any severe weather outbreak. here you go tomorrow morning. here comes that front. a couple clouds with it, then it moves through. high pressure, westerly breeze, very dry conditions. then as we head into tuesday morning, back down to the low 40s with light and variable winds then this high will give us another southwest flow on tuesday. going to be mild again.
wednesday, yeah, you'll go out the door kind of wet wednesday morning then as wednesday afternoon comes in, some cooler breezes out of the northwest will flow in. be a little breezy but dry out very quick. the forecast 68 in san ford, 69 in fail vil. 68 smithfield, 68 wilson, 68 raleigh and durham and lewisburg. henderson 67. roxboro 66 degrees. you saw the winds out of the west 5 to 12 miles per hour. so tomorrow, 50. 40 minutes away from becoming cbs so we'll see that tomorrow as you watch your new programming. 68 degrees. partly sunny skies at times, but then sun late in the day so it'll be clear tomorrow night. 42, and then on tuesday, we'll see 68 degrees. wednesday, there's that 50% chance so let's explore that. scattered showers in the morning. maybe at noontime, but i think by drive time, things will be clearing out. little cooler than the next two days.
holding in the 50s, getting up to 60, but those hourlies there in the 50s. then thursday, we quickly clear out, and we're partly cloudy. 55. friday, another low pressure system is going to skirt to our south so we'll keep an eye on that to give us a chance of rain. it'll be chilly in the morning. upper 30s, low to mid 40s. that'll be quite a change. that'll be kind of like the lows we are going to have tonight, and then saturday, we're clearing out. 49. next sunday, 54 degrees with partly cloudy skies. so all in all, the next two great. >> yeah. might as well make it a holiday. cbs monday, right? >> okay. enjoy your extra day, too. >> leap day, too. it'll be a good day all around. all right. well, as you've heard, starting tomorrow morning, we will officially be cbs north carolina, your new home for cbs news and programming. one of the many award-winning shows you'll see in prime time this week, "mom." anna farris
